Worms Scheme Contest, also known as WSC (which is a not-too-subtle reference to the game's scheme format), is a contest where people compete by making new schemes. The first—and so far, only—contest started in January 1st, 2010. It is organized by Balee.
Anyone can participate by sending in a scheme they created, if the simple condition of the scheme in question not being public is fulfilled. It is generally agreed upon, that "being public" means that the scheme is not hosted in any leagues or tournaments (for example in Worm Olympics), nor it is played on WormNET by people other than the creator of the scheme, and a minimal amount of people—this usually meaning friends and clanmates. The submitted replays are reviewed by a carefully selected jury, who will give points for each scheme by either following certain guidelines, or by deciding on them subjectively. The submissions are handled anonymously, to ensure impartial judgement.
It is imperative, that the schemes someone wants to submit is original—even if it's a variant of a previously existing scheme.
The goal of this contest is to present new, enjoyable schemes to the public, in order not to let the community—to quote Balee—"sink into the 'Shopper-WxW-Normal' trio's swamp". His idea is that by presenting several new schemes to the people of WormNET, more and more players might realize the importance of enjoyable, non-competitive gameplay, as well as that of a good community spirit.
